President Donald J. Trump was on fire on Twitter Wednesday, blasting the media over their coverage of his NATO trip, supporting his wife Melania, and highlighting moments from the impeachment inquiry hearings before the House Judiciary Committee.

After a whirlwind trip to the U.K. for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s (NATO) 70th-anniversary meeting, Trump accused the “fake news media” of trying to “belittle” his success there.

“The Fake News Media is doing everything possible to belittle my VERY successful trip to London for NATO. I got along great with the NATO leaders, even getting them to pay $130 Billion a year more, & $400 Billion a year more in 3 years. No increase for U.S., only deep respect!” Trump tweeted.

“.@NATO has now recognized SPACE as an operational domain and the alliance is STRONGER for it. U.S. leadership ensures peace through strength and we must continue to show strength and WIN on all fronts – land, air, sea, and SPACE!” Trump continued.

Next, Trump tweeted about a column posted in the New York Times titled, “Kevin Talks Turkey,” in which NYT columnist Maureen Dowd’s brother Kevin explains his continued support for Trump.


“Just read the best Maureen Dowd column, in the New York Times, EVER (although she treated me great before politics), but it was written by her brother, Kevin. Someone in the News Media should hire her wonderful, talented, and very smart brother!” Trump tweeted.

In the column, Dowd starts things off by explaining, “No matter how bad your Thanksgiving is, mine will be worse, and I’ll tell you why. My sister thinks Jim Jordan is hot. Well, she didn’t say “hot” exactly, but the words “admire,” “forceful” and “fighter” have been thrown around. And then there’s Kevin. It has been a crazy year, even by Trump standards. So I asked my brother to tell us, in his annual Thanksgiving column, if he has any regrets.”

Her brother, Kevin, writes:

Over the last three years, Maureen has frequently sent me reader emails demanding to know how I can still support Donald Trump. My short answer is always the same: Have you looked at the alternative?

The liberals still sneer at religious conservatives. I wouldn’t let them come with me to the Knights of Columbus bar. In August, the D.N.C. passed a resolution saying “religiously unaffiliated Americans” are the largest “religious group” in the party and “overwhelmingly” share Democrats’ values. And certain House chairmen are waiving the words “So help me God” from swearing-ins.

Kevin says he supports Trump, despit him being “coarse” and a “bully,” because of the economy, jobless rate, stock market, support for the police, and because he feels “safe in my bed with the way the president is handling Iran and North Korea.”

“Most of all,” Kevin wrote, “I support him for saving the Supreme Court from Hillary Clinton.”

Trump retweeted a post by his wife, First Lady Melania Trump, who was seemingly outraged after an impeachment witness invoked the name of her son Barron, during the hearing.

Trump weighed in after the House Judiciary Committee concluded the first impeachment hearing Wednesday with a flurry of retweets. The hearing featured four law professors, three who support the impeachment of President Trump.

In the series of retweets, Trump threw the spotlight on key moments from, and commentary about, the impeachment inquiry hearing.
